    No I'm crystal clear that the CBO uses numerous sources, including independent experts, to make its projections. I gave the site.

    Everything else is just noise from the rightwing noise machine.

    This is true but the numbers I posted were not projections (beliefs) but rather historical data (facts) from the Treasury...how is it that beliefs trump facts again?

    Leftwing noise indeed...

    California can go bankrupt if it wants just so I dont have to pay a "red" (pardon the pun) cent to bail them out. Let them rot in fiscal hell for all there crazy totalitarian Liberal left wacko policies they've implemented.

    CBO gets information from a variety of sources including independent experts.

    You lose. But I'm glad you support Krugman now! He mocks rightwing memes about how SS is going broke.
    So was Krugman lying when he said this?

    How To Read A CBO Report

    What you need to realize is that the CBO is the servant of members of Congress, which means that if a Congressman asks it to analyze a plan under certain assumptions, it will do just that — no matter how unrealistic the assumptions may be. CBO will tell you what’s going on, but it will do so deadpan, doing nothing in terms of emphasis or placement to highlight the funny business.
    Looks like he affirms EVERY POINT I MADE

    Hahahahaha .......

    People might want to look at CBOs track record. They're generally not that bad short term, 2yrs or so, long term not so much. Their record on medical projections are particularly not good.

    He is referring to reports that congress requests from the CBO; not the data that the CBO uses to produce the reports

    We aren't referring to CBO projections. We're talking about their data

    They can sure as hell tell when a budget is in balance or not.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    You can't. Cause it did not happen.
